Exactly. The benefit of having a detailed version on userbase is
rather simple: there is a great ... userbase which updates content
regularly. At least more than on some json file or in closed down
websites. ;)

That is of course up to the project to decide what is a valuable
information resource. The idea was once (some years back) raised to
have a central place for information about any KDE app. And be it only
a list of further links, which is possible, as you can see in the
sidebar of the app pages.
Afterall, we are talking about ~80 different subdomains for KDE, most
of them app or project specific ones. Not easy for a plain user to
find what s/he wants.

I assume you are talking about the page. Like you said, it is
up to you. A simple feature list or even just a description with
updated links for further information is fine. Afterall, we are only
talking about a json file ;)
It should at least fullfill what a new user expects or wishes to see
there, preferably without clicking through 3 sites.
